Workday at SLU

The Journey to Workday Has Begun

In September 2018, Saint Louis University announced our selection of Workday as our next administrative system, replacing the current Banner system. Workday’s Human Resources modules are on target to go live in January 2020, and the Finance modules are scheduled to go live July 1, 2020.

The move to Workday will provide more modern tools while enabling improvements to University business processes. Our goal in making this change is to strengthen the University by implementing innovative, best-in-class tools and processes aligned with our academic, research and patient care excellence.

About the Workday Implementation

The Workday implementation at SLU is a complex, multi-year program to improve the way we make mission-driven decisions. To do this, we are replacing the University’s core human resources (January 2020), finance (July 2020) and student (TBD) administrative systems with a single, central, integrated system located “in the cloud.”

More simply put, we are creating a University-wide data source that allows our people to access information in real time through the internet. In addition, having the system “in the cloud” allows SLU to continually upgrade and enhance our administrative system capabilities as Workday regularly releases enhancements and new features.
